Naomi offers a variety of yoga classes to practice and explore yoga in all its aspects - including asana (postures), pranayama (breath awareness and mastery), dhyana (meditation) and yoga philosophy.
Together we can develop a programme in all these areas. For a slower paced practice try the Hatha yoga; for a more 'aerobic type' faster paced practice try the Vinyasa flow.
Aims to harmonise body, mind and spirit. Hatha is translated as ha meaning "sun" and tha meaning "moon." This refers to the balance of masculine aspects "active, hot, sun" and feminine aspects "receptive, cool, moon" within all of us. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites. In our physical bodies we develop a balance of strength and flexibility, focusing on body alignment whilst creating stillness.. We also learn to balance our effort and surrender in each pose. Hatha yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation. It asks us to bring our attention to our breath, which helps us to still the fluctuations of the mind and be more present in the unfolding of each moment.Pranayama (breath work) and meditation are key to the practice and help to bring balance to the breath and the mind. Deep relaxation takes place at the end of each class.
A dynamic, physically demanding, flowing practice where poses run together and synchronised with the breath. The dance-like movements facilitate a meditative quality to the practice.This practice raises the heart rate and aims to build heat in the body to allow more flexibility in the muscles, burn fat and release toxins.
A slow-paced, meditative style with postures that are held for longer periods of time that work on opening the meridians. Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body (the tendons, fascia, and ligaments) with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. Yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
